PARK CITY INSTITUTESt. Regis - Deer ValleySat. Mar 16 - 7:30
Mischief, mayhem and perhaps a little madness take over as we gather, once again, at the St. Regis Deer Valley, for the Saints and Sinners Ball to support the Student Outreach Programs of the Park City Institute. Shenanigans and high-jinx, auctions, a champagne sabering, plus traditional Irish fare and libations conspire to create an evening that is decidedly whimsical. Clever costumes abound.
